Summarize the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they challenge the specific arguments presented in the reading passage.
In recent years, many frog species around the world have declined in numbers or even gone extinct due to changes in their environment. These population declines and extinctions have serious consequences for the ecosystems in which frogs live; for example, frogs help play a role in protecting humans by eating disease-carrying insects. Several methods have been proposed to solve the problem of declining frog populations.
First, frogs are being harmed by pesticides, which are chemicals used to prevent insects from damaging farm crops such as corn and sugarcane. Pesticides often spread from farmland into neighboring frog habitats. Once pesticides enter a frog’s body, they attack the nervous system, leading to severe breathing problems. If laws prohibited the farmers from using harmful pesticides near sensitive frog populations, it would significantly reduce the harm pesticides cause to frogs.
A second major factor in frog population decline is a fungus that has spread around the world with deadly effect. The fungus causes thickening of the skin, and since frogs use their skin to absorb water, infected frogs die of dehydration. Recently, researchers have discovered several ways to treat or prevent infection, including antifungal medication and treatments that kill the fungus with heat. Those treatments, if applied on a large scale, would protect sensitive frog populations from infection.
Third, in a great many cases, frog populations are in decline simply because their natural habitats are threatened. Since most frog species lay their eggs in water, they are dependent on water and wetland habitats. Many such habitats are threatened by human activities, including excessive water use or the draining of wetlands to make them suitable for development. If key water habitats such as lakes and marshes were better protected from excessive water use and development, many frog species would recover.

The writer proposes that to protect frogs' life, there is some solution to keep frogs living, however, the speaker claims some disadvantage at solve the problem of declining grog population.
The writer first claims that the pesticides, used by the farmer to create more crops, might make the frog's population decline that farmers should decline the use of pesticides. Nevertheless, the speaker refutes the writer's statement and claims that the proposal is wrong. The lecturer claims that although the farmer declines the usage of pesticides, the farmer might force to decline the crop and that is not fair. Since the frog's population becomes restore, the farmer needs to lose their crops.
The author also says the fungus, spread around the world, will make frog cannot absorbing water that people should kill the fungus. This statement still rejected by the lecturer and indicates that the solution is no use and a waste of time. Since the speaker says the funges are spread around the world that is hard to eliminate. Also, people need to find the frog to take off the fungus on their skin. However, people need to repeat this solution year by year because the fungus will thicken on frogs' skin again and again.
In the beginning, the writer still claims that the prescription, protect the frog's habitat, will solve the problem of declining frog population. This statement also overthrows by the speaker and states that the most important to treat the frog's habitat is global warming that declines the water to make some species extinct, so the solution to keep wetlands and water in the lake cannot recover the frog's population.
